Leave it to the guy who wrote about how he’s still paying for Netflix’s DVD plan to get frustrated with streaming services like Netflix, HBO Max and Disney+, but it’s true. I A.m Frustrating. Not even a little, but a lot! This does not mean that I Dislikes Theirs, because I love watching great big monster movies on HBO Max, as well as the convenience of running an app and watching shows like squid gameAnd the werewolf at night. This is all right and great.
But that’s the good side of broadcasting. When I really know what I want to watch, it’s great. For example, I like the new star Wars turns out, Andorwhich I think both fans and nonstar Wars Fans should check. I also highly recommend Strong woman. I think it’s the best Marvel show so far. But, these are probably the only two recommendations I can make to you since I have already watched these two shows. I’ve never seen shows like DahmerAnd the Peripheralor The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Yet, I probably never will. But I get ahead of myself. Here are five reasons why I’m so frustrated with streaming services.
There is a lot of general content
As I noted earlier, there is way too much public content to keep up with these days. My co-worker asked me the other day if I had finished Dahmer Yet, I have had to shyly admit that I haven’t started it yet. I say “yet,” but I know I’ll never watch it. Not because I don’t want to, but because there are so many other shows and movies I still need to catch up on instead.
Likes mysterious! Everyone tells me that mysterious Fabulous! And the Blonde. My co-worker said it reminded him of Roman Polanski, repulsionAnd I love repulsion! gotta put Blonde in my list. Oh, what about white lotus? I’ve heard great things about this show. Oh, oh, oh, and hocus pocus 2. Our own Mike Reyes said the sequel was “pretty cool” in his review.
So yeah, I’m sure you can see what I’m getting into here because you’re probably in the same boat. There is so much content to watch these days, and not enough hours to watch it. I mean, I saw Queen’s gambit Just a few months ago, and that’s been setting records on Netflix throughout 2020, so you can see how much I’ve backed up. It’s a banana.
Prices are on the rise
Seriously, every time I check my email I get another message that prices are going up. Like, I remember when I was paying $10 a month for Netflix, and now I’m paying about $16. That’s on top of the $15 DVD plan that already ran my credit card bill. Disney+ was like, $8 a month at launch, and now I hear it’s going up to $11, and look, you get it. season 3 of The Mandalorian It will not be cheap.
However, it has become too much now. I’m sure you’ve heard stories of how people decided to ditch Netflix, or one of the other streaming services, but it’s true. I may have to think seriously about what I should go for and what I can keep. And even with Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, HBO Max, and Amazon Prime Video, it is resident Somehow it’s not enough to watch everything I want to see, which I’ll turn to next.
Missing certain kinds of shows we used to get the cable
You know, I feel like ten years ago, like my dear critic to cut It was on AMC. Now, it’s boxed on Apple TV+, which I don’t have, by the way. I really wanted to see what’s new Beavis and Boot Headsince they’re two of my favorite characters from the old MTV days, but they’re on Paramount+ now… which I don’t have either.
Wait, there is more! heels? This is on TBS, right? number? It’s on Starz. rats; I don’t have stars. How about an old show like Twilight Zone? Surely I can watch that on any of the streaming services, right? number? It’s only on Paramount+ now? Bloody hell. The fact of the matter is, it shows that I’m pretty sure I could have set the primary cable to watch before it’s now scattered all over the place. Lord knows I will eventually have to sign up for Paramount + for my Avatar: Another Airbender Fixed since the Avatar Airbender Universe finally existed, but not today, my friends. not today.
There is no end in sight
Not only that, but when does it end? In the beginning, there was Netflix, and Netflix was good. Then there was Hulu. I suspect. Then Disney +, HBO Max, Shudder, AMC +, The Criterion Channel, etc. God; My friend, Jeremy, a movie nerd older than me, thinks I’m a real public person because I don’t cough up $11 a month to watch it. bike thieves on the standard channel. I mean, come on now, I can watch KagemushaInstead, I’m watching mysterious (or at least me will Watch mysterious…In the end). What’s going on? How can it be pedestrian?
The truth is that once Disney got into the livestreaming game, the gate was truly I opened. Like, did you know that while I don’t pay for Paramount+, Starz, or the ad-free version (oh, don’t worry. I’ll get to ads in a minute) of Peacock, an act Subscribe to Troma NOW. Yes, you heard me correctly. Truma now! And if Troma has their own streaming service, then by God, everybody They should have their own streaming service. I I might even have my own streaming service for all I know. It’s dangerous that this is out of control. Rich Knight +. This article is currently streaming. For $15 a month. Or free with ads! Speaking of this topic…
Ad layers for streaming may slowly convert services into something like YouTube
Finally, can I say I can’t stand YouTube anymore? What was once the home of new Mexican guys looking for their future girlfriend, “chocolate rain” is now…nothing but…advertisements. Or, at least it seems to me these days. It’s as if I’m watching normal TV all over again, just as if I was a kid.
And I have a feeling that streaming will be that way, soon, too. We already know that services like Netflix and Disney+ will soon have cheaper, tiered versions of their services, like Peacock for now. However, one of the reasons for broadcasting used That would be cool because it was a completely different model than a regular TV. Hell, Netflix drops entire seasons into the weekend, as the entire binge culture was largely created by them. Now, will we have an ad category? How terrible would that gluttony be?
Yes, you can pay as you do now Not You have ads, but what if this ad layer is effective, and more people get to use it? Will the cost continue to rise, until it reaches an unbearable point and many of us will have to downgrade just to keep Netflix? If that happens, we’ll go back to the time when we used to sit between dish soap and car ads just to get back to Roseanne. And who wants that?!
